Senville SENL-18CD Air Conditioner Review

Ductless mini split units consist of two main components, an air handler unit located indoors, and a condenser unit, located outdoors. These two components are then linked through the wall by wires and tubing, thus removing the necessity for large air ducts. Today we will be reviewing one such unit, weighing up its pros and its cons to bring you all of the up-to-date information available about this extraordinarily powerful home air conditioner. Check out our full assessment below for more.

 

Cooling Performance

Providing the user with a formidable 18,000 BTUs of sheer cooling power, the Senville SENL-18CD is a fitting choice of air conditioning system for installation in residential spaces of up to a staggering 1,000 square feet. Additionally, with a maximum airflow of 424 cubic feet per minute, this unit is able to circulate air quickly and efficiently, which means the desired cooling effect is delivered at a faster pace to the whole room.

 

Efficiency & Certifications

A unit’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) figure is an industry recognised measure of a unit’s efficiency. While there are slight issues with the system, the principle remains; the higher the figure, the more efficient the unit. With a SEER score of 15, this unit is moderately efficient. Additionally, this unit incorporates inverter technology, which allows it to control its fan speed, thus saving energy, as opposed to consistently turning itself on and off.

As far as certifications are concerned, the Senville SENL-18CD is ETL certified, which declares that this product adheres to all the necessary regulations required to be suitable for the North American market. Further, this unit also benefits from an AHRI performance certification, meaning that all of the specifications published with this unit are indeed accurate.

 

Convenience

With the inclusion of a wireless remote control, the user is enabled to issue commands to their unit from anywhere in the room. While seemingly a trivial design feature, you would be surprised how many units on the market do not include a remote, and take it from us, you miss it.

 

Design

Multi-directional air vents built-into this unit allow it to provide a more even distribution of cooled air to the local environment. In addition, this unit comes with its own 16 ft. installation kit. However, we strongly advise into attempting any kind of installation. While installing a ductless mini split air conditioner is not as complex as some of the larger ducted air conditioning systems, a professional is still required. Note, should you attempt installation yourself, there is a chance of causing damage to the air conditioner, and attempting to install without an experienced contractor can, at times, render you ineligible to avail of any warranty coverage. Check out our brief run-down of this system’s dimensions below.

Another benefit of this product, although obvious it may be, is that the Senville SENL-18CD is a ductless mini split air conditioner unit.
